The UK fee-based data site FindMyPast.com
is adding baptism, marriage and burial records from more than 1,000 parishes across Britain.
The records date as far back as 1538, making them valuable sources for research before civil registration began in 1837. You can search by surname across all the records without knowing where your ancestor lived.
Starting today, you can view more than over 15 million parish burial records and memorial inscriptions. A total of 7 million baptism, marriage and probate records will become available later this year.
The parish records are available with an Explorer subscription to FindMyPast.com
, which costs 54.95 pounds ($109) for 6 months or 89.95 pounds ($178) for a year.
You also can search some English baptism and marriages through FamilySearch Labs' Record Search
(scroll down and look under Vital Records).
